with the obama administration. there are other people who probably share every bit of mr. perez's views as relates to the use of the law, labor unions, empowering labor unions, fighting against employers who don't want to offer benefits and union access. there's probably somebody who does all of those things, but isn't as controversial as mr. perez, but in choosing mr. perez the president sends a clear message to republicans that says obama 2.0 is still on. >> megyn: we mentioned some of the sound bites in the introduction about mr. perez from somebody who used to work at the doj. that somebody is jay christian adams, he was a do jchj attorne and he worked on the new black panthers case that mr. perez testified about earlier and an openly conservative man. mr. perez is not. so they clearly have an ideological divide between the two of them. he went on the mark levin radio show last week and had the following to say about mr. perez. >> totally lawless. this is a man for whom law is a nuisance. he brings the cases, you might remember, against school districts to allow children to dress in
between the policies that the obama administration is pursuing and what netanyahu and the israelis would like to see. it's that huge substantive canyon that's important here, not their personal likes or dislikes. >> the poll showed 10% of israelis like the president. the white house, according to the "new york times", a senior official said the setting that he'll speak at a convention center, reflected his interest in reaching out to younger israelis. given the knesset's reputation for rambunctious debate, they worry about president obama being heckled. what does it mean if the president of the united states can be heckled at the knesset? >> if he were going to speak at the knesset, i would recommend that ever every israeli legislae polite. there's no guarantee in a public setting, in an auditorium or an exhibition hall that he won't be heckled there, either. i think the israelis recognize that this is the most hostile president to the state of israel since it was founded in 1948. so the only surprise to me is that 10% have a favorable opinion of him. >> and finally, at the end of this m
. republicans were particularly incensed that the obama administration kept some of those regulation, held them back until after the election but they're coming now. bill: big, big picture. 35,000 feet. the idea of the law was to insure those who did in the have insurance. to make sure that they are covered. does any of this address that in the end? >> well, i think there is no doubt that people who are today uncovered will have some sort of health coverage. i think the bigger question politically is, the president's promise which he made over and over again if you have health coverage and you like it you will be able to keep it. i don't think anybody is thinking that will be the case. so for the large percentage of americans, the large majority of americans who have health care coverage and who are satisfied with it, i think whether that changes and it changes for the worst is going to determine the political future, maybe the whole future of obamacare. bill: how would you answer that now as we look at this today? >> well it looks to me there are lots of dislocations, price increases, changes
of the house foreign affairs committee delivered a blistering critique of the obama administration's conduct. >> for two bloody years, u.s. policy has been addressed. they initially saw him as a reformer. once the revolt started, they backed u.n. diplomacy. predictably, none of this is war. reporter: as if bashar al-assad is any closer to hang onto power, the ambassador said he is not a psychiatrist, but the receivers military situation is worsening. jon: the longer this goes on from the more damage goes on. >> they are seeing hezbollah soldiers and weapons systems coming from iran and using iraq as a transit point. the secretary of state was recently in saudi arabia by providing arms to the rebels directly while the u.s. has non-lethal it. ambassador defended the administration's approach. >> is secretary. >> is secretary john kerry noted ,-com,-com ma therefore we are working with our partners to strengthen the opposition on the ground. reporter: russia continues to look at the concerns. jon: thank you. speak to the growing concerns of the nation of cyprus. the government elected to come u
and five years, four and a half since the obama administration took over, what's it going to take? >> i think general shinseki is an example of the many public servants at the va and he is a decorated veteran himself. i've dealt with va officials in arkansas and washington here and they want to do the right thing. they may lack the resources and best practices. in some ways the department of veteran affairs is like an insurance company or claims processing company. they don't always have the best and most modern practices and one thing we could do in congress through oversight is help to ensure they get the training and resources they need. i think the will and the desire are certainly there to serve veterans if you look at an organization like walmart, my home state just announced a new initiative where they're going to hire every veteran who applies for a job, as long as they have a clean background check, they want that experience there. the country certainly appreciates veterans and wants to serve them. >> good intentions just don't get them those benefits soon enough. >> right whic
in their concern about iranian proliferation. >> rose: the issue at the beginning of the obama administration was settlements, right? >> yes, indeed. and i think that's where the obama administration, as aaron pointed out, made a mistake i think they hit netanyahu very hard on settlements while at the same time extending a hand to the iranians. that did not go over very well with a variety of israelis. here israel was a staunch ally of the united states. had come up 16 years in which presidents were in love with their israeli counterparts as aaron pointed out and here was the new president taking a very hard stance on settlements while at the same time telling the iranians he'll talk to them about anything anywhere at any time i think that could have been handled differently. i think obviously we've been dancing around the issue of settlements for a very long time. this is a central issue in the conflict. >> rose: aaron, are the israelis doing things that make a palestinian settlement increasingly difficult? >> sure. >> rose: are they doing it because they don't want to see a settlement? they
, and the accusations flying back and forth about chemical weapons. the obama administration has said in the past this would be a game changer that is a red line. as we were discussing earlier with iran watson, tens of thousands of people have been readily killed by conventional weapons, why would this make it different? >> i think the great fear that the u.s. has, that the obama administration has, certainly the israelis have, if these weapons, if these stockpiles got into the wrong hands, they sense right now -- i think they still sense, that the syrian military of president bashar al assad, even though he's desperate and may be on his last leg, he's probably not going to use expensively chemical weapons. but they fear these weapons could get in the hands of terrorists, sympathizers to al qaeda, if it got into the hands of hezbollah which the u.s. and israel see as an extension in effect of iran, there would be deep concern. i don't think the israelis would allow that to happen. i think they would use military force to prevent that if necessary. and i suspect the united states would as well. so
get out of jail free cards. the obama administration blames sequestration. the head says it didn't have to happen. >> we can seek ee programming requirements that is absolutely true, mr. chairman. we did not in this instance. i did not want to rob peter to pay paul. and my view is that we need to maintain the operations of the agency. i don't want to furlough people. >> they have to altar how it spends the money it receives from congress. $1.6 billion f $1.6 billi $1.6 billion vanishing without a trace when jon corzine. lawyers from jp morgan chase the trustee for the failed robibroke firm returned about $546 million for customers. the democratic governor for new jersey will not face charges for the missing money. he says he was not involved. a new jersey familiar lace home was raided after this photo was shared on facebook. shawn moore a firearms enstri instructor post add picture of a gun he got for his birthday. child abuse was called. they threatened to take the kids away. cops didn't have a warrant. they will be live on fox and friends to talk about their ordeal. >> a collec
a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a ver
similar laws on the books and a number of other states are also considering comparable measures. the obama administration supports the challenge to the arizona law. and today's arguments on the heels of another case that could roll back a key portion of the voting rights act of 1965. for more on today's arguments, we turn as always to marcia coyle of the "national law journal." she was in the courtroom this morning, and is back with us tonight. so the outcome, marcia, of this could actually tip the federal-state balance on who gets to govern how we vote. >> that's true, gwen. the question before the justices is where do you draw the line between who has the authority to regulate elections. the election clause of the constitution actually gives authority to both. but where is the line when one crosses or goes too far than the other does? so that's the issue before the court. it wasn't clear today that it's going to be an easy line to find. >> ifill: the reason why this arizona law exists is because arizona officials say there's a problem involving illegal or undocumented immigrants register
controversial situation. the obama administration releasing illegal aliens from prison who have been convicted of crimes in this country. >> did you release any resittist drunk drivers? >> yes. >> how many? >> i don't have the exact number, but we have released many individuals who had dui offenses. >> repeat offender dui. >> repeat offender dui. congress has not provided that dui is a ground of removal. in fact most misdemeanors is not a ground of removal. it's the agency by agency policy that factors that in. i can't order you removed for having committed a dui offense. >> no, you can't, director but you certainly can request a rescheduling so you can move money around. this notion that you don't want to rob peter to pay paul, you could have easily done that you could have found $600 to keep these level one violators from being released and don't act like you could not have. here now uma. number of drunk drivers who have killed americans. very troubling. what was this hearing. >> house judiciary committee hearing looking at the fallout from the release of those 2,000 plus detainees who were
million to help, an amount almost equal to what the obama administration gave earlier. one questions critics asked now with iron dome and missile resistant bus stops in schools such as these as you see here, does it embolden israel? >> conversation for another day. richard lui, thank you. that's going to wrap up this hour, i'm chris jansing, alex witt is up next filling in. dum. oh dad, you remember my friend alex? yeah. the one that had the work done...

a drift. the obama administration saw assad as a reformer in the works. then at that on to play a constructive role. toand then it bet on moscow play a constructive role. this is the assad who is bombing villages in syria. this is the assad who is ordering teenagers tortured. frankly, he is engaged in murdering his populist. the ancient city is now in ruins. 70,000 syrians are dead. a million refugees has spilled into neighboring countries. destabilizing those countries. there are troubling reports that assad might be moving to unleash chemical weapons. the u.s. has been generous in supporting suffering serious, butuffering syrians, perhaps naÏvely so. it has been funneled through the un and other international organizations that are restricted to areas controlled by the syrian regime. that is absurd. only recently has the u.s. begun to push food aid directly to the syrian opposition. that shift should accelerate dramatically. i really wonder about providing any humanitarian aid through the un that ends up going to the regime at all. it indirectly helps assad and therefore pres
on the record. the obama administration says that if that is true, that would be the red line the president has set in the past but they haven't said whether they have the intelligence evidence to prove it. i spoke to an israeli high government source who said we're not saying anything about that right now for good reason but they promised it would be part of the private conversations between the president and the prime minister. john and christine. >> john, it really does seem like this symbolic trip, was supposed to be a symbolic trip has brought in new urgency with what's going on in syria. let's bring in chris and katherine. >> i was wondering, what are you hearing from folks on the ground about iran? you know, the conversation between the president and the prime minister. is there some sense that there's going to be an announcement at the end of this trip one way or the other or is this all behind the scenes and we're not going to see anything publicly until later down the road? >> reporter: there's no question both leaders will talk about it because they will be asked about it when they h
of the reasons the obama administration said it's important to continue the spending by the united states here in israel. $3 billion a year in aid and the president got a tour of what some of that money bought. an iron dome missile defense system that had been very effective in guarding southern israeli cities against rockets coming out of gaza. that's one of the things the president has pointed to saying i support israel. i support israel's security and safety by spending money on the iron dome. the charm offensive continues later today. there is going to be a number of ceremonies, a number of private meetings and tomorrow, president obama takes his message directly to the israeli people. he has a speech televised heres0 college students where it's thought he is going to try and make his sell on his views not only on iran, but also on the palestinians and the greater middle east issues here in jerusalem. he's got an uphill battle. now a current poll in israel shows only 10% of israelis say they, quote, like the president. back to you in new york. >> steve: lee land vittert live where he's tal
the president is coming. some protesters in bethlehem burned ape poster of mr. obama. the president rounds off his trip with a stop in jordan for a meeting g meeting. administration officials have set low expectations for the trip saying there will be no major announcements of a breakthrough in the israeli-palestinian peace process. >>> the mayor of kansas city missouri, was in the middle of delivering his state of the city address when a man shoved him, and grabbed the microphone. he managed to shout obscenities, slammed the mayor before police tackled him out. eyewitnesses say he scuffled with the officers for ten minutes backstage before he was finally escorted out of the building. >>> the ukrainian parliament was shut down, after lawmakers engaged in -- look at this -- an all-out brawl. fists flew when a member of the party delivered a speech in russian. that angered the opposing nationalist party which believe strongly that urabian should be spoken instead. >> gee, whiz. >> for a language, really? ukraine is divided between those who favor continuing close ties to ru
a new administration firmly believed, whether you agree with them or not, that its predecessor, george w. bush, had been fighting essentially a war on islam. that was the view on the arab street and the obama folks went out very directly in cairo in 2009 to rebut that. now, that had some collateral damage particularly among the israeli public which seems to have forgotten in large measure that the level of cooperation, be it economic, military, intelligence sharing between the two courts has never exceeded what now finds with president obama. >> i'm going to leave it on that point. jim warren and joy reid, thank you for joining us this evening. >> thank you. >>> ahead, michele bachmann running from reality? sorry congressman. you can run but you can't hide from the truth. plus, in tonight's nice try but we've got you segment, what could possibly go wrong? don't worry, we've got them. >>> and march madness is here. college basketball going wild. but republicans have found another way to go after the president. i'll be stuffing their weak stuff coming up. >>> have you joined the "politicsn
, president obama has made it clear that his red line in syria is the use or movement of chemical weapons. what specifically will he do if that has happened, the administration has not said, but i can tell you that one option they are weighing is to arm the rebel forces in syria. senators mccain and graham have said that this administration should move forward with that if it is, in fact, confirmed that chemical weapons were used. but martin, right now, the administration being very careful with its wording because there is no confirmation that chemical weapons were, in fact, used. having said that, they are quite disturbed by the increase in violence and ongoing violence. they continue to call for assad to step down. >> i assume, kristen, prime minister netanyahu is going to press the president on syria as much as he will on the issue of iran, given developments today. >> reporter: absolutely. syria, iran, i think that president obama when he speaks to prime minister netanyahu will go there with the intent of making it very clear that the united states is committed to preventing iran fro
